12-year-old calls out cop in viral video for parking illegally

PHOENIX - A video of a 12-year-old calling out a Las Vegas police officer for parking illegally has accumulated more than 3 million views.

In the clip, the boy, named Jeremy, films an officer who parked on the sidewalk in front of a gas station, asking him why he parked there if there wasn't an emergency.

"Because I can," the cop responds.

Jeremy then asks the officer for his badge number. When the officer asks Jeremy why he wants to know his badge number, Jeremy says he "has a right to." The incident took place in September 2012.

The officer refuses to give his badge number and accuses Jeremy of loitering before the video ends.
